Bright Lights

Bright Lights is a nonprofit organization that takes learning beyond the classroom by providing youth with unique, motivating, hands-on learning opportunities.

Why choose Bright Lights?

Our Impact in 2017

  • Students Registered


  • Classes/Camps Offered


  • Scholarships Awarded


  • Teachers


The holidays are just around the corner and so is the Bright Lights holiday book fair at Barnes & Noble!

Jody Olsson, Olsson Family Foundation executive director, Bright Lights board member and parent to four former Bright Lights students, shares the connections of the Foundation and the importance of being a long-term donor to our program.

Bright Lights is for all students. It is not a program solely for identified gifted or high ability students. In fact, the beauty of Bright Lights classes is that curiosity is all that’s really needed to make a child a good candidate for attending one of our classes or camps.
